're not sure the sort of extent of that? >> that -- >> educated guess. >> that's the big question. that is our question, thank you very much for the top democrat on the house budget committee is expressing some optimism that a deal can be had to avert tax hikes and massive spending cuts. chris van holland joining us from the capitol. thank you very much, congressman. >> good to be with you. >> do we know nothing from the secret talks? >> well, we don't know a lot, andrea, but you presented it very well in that lead-in there. there are a couple of things that have changed. number one, you now have the face-to-face meetings between the president, the speaker of the house. that's obviously good news. always better than not talking. sending, you have this growing awareness on the part of congressional republicans that their earlier position was unsustainable. the idea that they would allow the economy to go down the tubes, allow tacks to go up on virtually every american all in order to protect the bonus tax breaks for high income earners. more and more republicans are recognizing that that's not
people, educate them, maybe some good of good will come 20 years down the road. >> you mentioned the justice component of many of these islamist parties. this is a response today corruption of these u.s.- sponsored regimes. -- to the corruption of these u.s.-sponsored regimes. for the record, i am against corruption. >> it goes back to the point at bottom made in my remarks that islamists did not win, the non- islamists lost. they lose by screwing up the delivery of services, by being so corrupt, by being ossified. islamists are there, waiting to take advantage of whatever opportunity, through violence or nonviolence. we did not even discuss their relationship with violence and nonviolence, which is a very important issue. they are there like vultures to reap the benefits, the carrion of these regimes. we can build, and we can help them, help the alternatives build better alternatives. >> question in the far corner over there. >> i am with the center for national policy. thank you for the debate. my point here is that there's been a suggestion that once islamists come to power, t
can see that the situation is actually worse. there's no change with education, with infrastructure or health care. corruption, poverty and hunger haven't decreased. >> lehrer: head of the u.n.'s large haiti missi here acknowledges the slow pace but says there has been some progress on the massive rebuilding task, a much smaller number of tent dwellings since last year, for example. >> if haiti were a glass and it's gone from being 10% full to 15% full, let's recognize that without in anyway diminishing the fact that you've still got 85% of the glass full. >> reporter: but fisher says many of the problems were endemic to haiti long before the earthquake. >> what we've seen is people who are in camps because of enrenched poverty. many o these people were hidden before in slums. they're now in the open in camp. that is a function of underdevelopment? it's a function of weak governance. it's a function of lack of alternative. >> reporter: he says one of the biggest problems is that haiti's government crippled by the quake in a corrupt reputation hasn't been able to lay out national pri
want our taxes to go to serve the policies of the country, education, charity, health care. i think that president obama's right about this. but i think compromise is going to be necessary to achieve some result. >> let me bring in abbe. your father is known as a moderate republican and a good dealmaker, a man who used to negotiate. what do you make of this? and what does he make of this? >> i think morale is so low right now. the country's so divided. especially for my generation. we're the ones that are going to be handed down the $60 trillion defic deficit. they will come to a deal. but right now, it's political theater. and it's probably going to look like the simpson-bowles. that will come full-circle again. >> here's a problem the republicans have got themselves into. is obama has been very clever here, the president. i think what he's done is skillfully said to the public, if he goes over the fiscal cliff, the republicans are prepared to make the entire middle class to pay more tax to save 2% of the wealthiest americans paying a little bit more. and that's a very bad position
of money and use that money for education and other things. >> all right. thank you for that. clearly so many more questions, legal questions, and for that we'll skip over to our joey jackson, legal commentator who joins us live from atlanta now. i think one of the big questions that also still remains for all of those guys out there having all sorts of fun in the park, there is still a federal law that says you can't smoke it. you can't carry it. you can't buy it. you can't sell it. you can't do anything when it comes to dope and the feds. how are these two entities going to compromise in this respect? >> with great difficulty. that was some party they had there. the federal law is pretty significant here because of course as you know back in 1970 we had a controlled substance act under nixon and one of those drugs that the fed said, you know what, was illegal and as you mentioned you can't manufacture and you can't produce and you can't import and you can't distribute and you can't sell would be marijuana and that's problematic because you have something called the supremacy clause. it
and education choices parents with special needs kids make. had it passed, crpd would have been the law of the land under the u.s. constitution supremacy clause and trumped state laws and could have been used as precedent by state and federal judges. again, that's not true. why the fudging of facts? we asked senator santorum on the program tonight. he declined, and like the others that won't explain themselves, we can guess their motivations and frankly it's so baffling we're taking wide guesses and we don't want to do that. the treaty supporters say that politics and a paranoia about the u.n. trumped the rights of the disabled in this vote. ted kennedy jr. is a health care attorney and advocate for people with disabilities. when he was 12 years old he lost his leg to bone cancer. there's a picture of him taken with his dad six years after that. he's a strong support either of the u.n. disabilities treaty. i spoke to him earlier today. >> it seems like you guys lost based on something that had nothing to do with the actual treaty? >> it's true. it's a sad day for people with disabilitie
can't. >> you can't, you shouldn't. >> right. >> when you start slashing education, when you start slashing r&d, transportation -- >> it's over. >> -- what you're doing is, you're slashing about 3%, 4% of the budget. and you're leaving the parts of the budget that blow a hole in the deficit and destroy this economy over the next 20 years. >> by the way, we won't go over the cliff for all the reasons we're talking about. even if we do, my friends on the street tell me, it's not a disaster. it's baked in. because we're going to get it done even after the fact. so you're talking about a few points in the market. >>> we're just moments away, joe and i will be removing -- >> oh, no! there it is! >> ow! >> it's all for a great cause. >> i don't know if it's that good. >> i don't know. is this going to be good television or kind of yucky? okay. we'll be right back. americans are always ready to work hard for a better future. since ameriprise financial was founded back in 1894, they've been committed to putting clients first. helping generations through tough times. good times. never takin
and said it would have given the u.n. oversight of the health care and education choices parents with special needs kids need to make. had it been the law of the land it would have trumped state laws and could have been used as precedent by state and federal judges. that is not true. so, why the fudging of facts and we asked senator santorum on the program. he, too, declined. we can only guess the motivations and frankly some of this is kind of so baffling we'd be taking wild guesses and we don't want to do that. the treaty supporters including senator kerry say that politics and a paranoia about the u.n. trumped the rights of the disabled in this vote. ted kennedy jr., the son of the late senator kennedy is a health care attorney and advocate for people with disabilities. when he was 12 years old he lost his leg to bone cancer. that's a picture taken six years after that. he's a strong supporter of the treaty and not ginn up on it. i spoke to him earlier today. >> it sounds to me, it's one thing to lose based on facts and another thing to lose based on things that are completely
to educate him. and i am very passionate as many americans are about our second amendment rights, and so i was originally just trying to explain to him. i wasn't trying to be nasty. i was really trying to make him understand where this debate was coming from, and he backed me into a corner and so i came back with a musket. >> well, i think that musket thing was absolutely terrific. but i've got to ask you, i need some help here. i'm going on the piers morgan show tonight. we're going to talk about taxes and regulation spending. so i'm not going to tweet, carol. i'm actually going to be there signature across from him. what should i do? >> i think you'll be fine. piers kind of tends to go to the socialist side of things. he's from britain originally, and he doesn't understand the capitalist system all the time. so i think if you and i just keep educating him, keep explaining to him things like the second amendment, like the free enterprise system, like capitalism, i think eventually it will get through to him. >> how is free enterprise doing? how is free market capitalism doing? i'm kind of

to talk about how they get health care, how they educate their kids, he has to talk about a lot of things that republicans traditionally don't like to talk about when it comes to certain groups of people. that is the test for marco rubio and paul ryan. >> what about chris christie and bobby jindal? >> christie is in temporary quarantine because of his behavior in the last week of the election. he is in talk. -- detox. >> detox on the jon stewart show. >> you have bobby jindal, kelly ayotte, ted cruz -- unless you are barack obama, you don't imagine yourself as president before you even serve in this and it. [laughter] he will have to wait. obama, of course, is the one exception. but this is a strong young outfield. mitch daniels and in jeb bush on the outside. what this tells you is what could have been in 2012. you remember the line of it republican candidates earlier this year, it was not exactly a credit to the party. and 20 debate heard them. -- hurt them. >> the quarantined governor christie and the new jersey has a 72% favorable job rating among his constituents, the highest ever re
with the education of little kids teaching them to hate israel and everything that it stands for and hope to have support from the people when you make a deal like that. so there are a lot of conditions for this to work, and it can't happen overnight. so as i said, part of the problem is they've created their own problem for acceptance of any kind of a reasonable deal. >> you expressed some pessimism or realism about what's likely to happen in afghanistan after the departure of substantial numbers of u.s. troops that'll be back, essentially, to where it was before 9/11. what happens to pakistan after that which is islamist, which is semi-democratic but with the emphasis on the semi and, of course, is nuclear armed? >> this just adds to the conundrum of the entire area and how we deal with it. and i go back to where i started. if you have some first principles that you try to apply in any controversy and recognize that as you apply them, there will be circumstances where some nuance and potential compromise is required, then you approach all of these problems that way. if you have very good intell
. of course, rhino horn is ending up oftentimes as a form of traditional medicine, so part is about educating buyers, educating individuals to be more sophisticated in understanding there's no scientific basis for rhino horns being a medicinal cure for anything at all. also, understanding that the trade is international. here in los angeles it's a major hub for the trade in rhino horn. illegal crime syndicates, it supports militias and destabilizes nations. it's both an issue at the source. it's a consumer education awareness. if there's no demand there's no supply. we all need to come together. >> phillippe, what can we do, just as normal folks, everyday people if we want to stop something like this? >> well, as i said, it's a big consumer issue. what will surprise many people to know is that the united states is probably the second largest destination for illegal wildlife products, tigers, ivory, rhino horn. in many cases there are even websites here in the united states that cater, fashion websites, antique websites that cater to the illegal ivory trade, for example. lots of rhino horn her
is awarded based on skills, experience, and education. maybe that's the answer. maybe it isn't. in a country that's always favored the underdog, we haven't really put much thought into this, have we? this fiscal cliff fight is going to end one way or another and then the real work begins. immigration reform is ahead. let's keep the conversation going. find us on facebook and twitter. our handle is cnn bottom line. "cnn saturday morning" continues now with the top stories we're watching. >>> from cnn world headquarters in atlanta, this is "cnn saturday morning." some are calling it the next roe v. wade or brown v. board of education. the issue the u.s. supreme court agreed to take on that will make history. >> all of those who argued for nonintervention because of the things that might happen have now happened because we failed to intervene. >>> when is enough enough? that is the question many are asking about syria, as the death toll climbs and concerns mount over chemical weapons. now some lawmakers are saying it may be too late to stop mass destruction. >>> and a toddler taken from the onl

their skills or education. for these americans, they have to be unemployed americans, you have an entire generation moving to the workforce right now that are not doing the key things they need to do. managing projects, managing budgets, managing people in order to get more income throughout their career. connell: they are educated. they are overeducated. one of the things he talk about all the time is we have to have our education system came and keep up with the world. what are you afraid of? >> my biggest concern, here we are in the holiday season, and there is a personal side on this, every single one of these numbers represent an individual that is trying very hard. the problem here is a long-term thing. if you cannot take that intellectual capital and put it to work for america and for america's principles, you are looking at a country that is at a disadvantage. connell: give us an idea of what you think we should be doing that we are not? >> i think one of the quick fixes is simply stepping back on a day like this when people are finding out, hill about the fiscal cliff and unders
retired educators in california who had pensions of more than $100,000 a year, okay. that's 700,000 of them in 2005. in 2011, there were 5,400 retired educators who had pensions of over $100,000 a year. >> greta: california is in deep trouble. >> deep trouble. >> i don't think in this country people are ever going to work towards solving these problems when we do these hits on different people. i mean, this is like the rich are so bad, they're urinating on the poor. >> yeah. >> greta: you know, no matter how we resolve or how we work towards resolving things, when you declare war. >> it's really inflammatory and ataghtattracts a lot of attenti. it was narrated by ed asner, by the way, the liberal actor. it obscures the fact of how wealthy the unions are. from the city journal article, in the last decade, the teachers unions spent more on politics in the last decade than the oil industry and the pharmaceutical industry and the tobacco industry combined. >> greta: don't they worry with the bad situation economically in california, and they're in a really tough situation, don't you
in education. let's invest in our teachers... ...so they can inspire our students. let's solve this. >>> we're back with tonight's outer circle where we reach out to our sources around the world and go to cairo where three advisers to morsi have stepped down. demonstrators set fire today to offices of the muslim brotherhood. >> reporter: president morsi thought he was going to have a cake walk to the nationwide referendum on december 15st on the constitution he was mistaken. at least three of his advisers resigned tonight as opposition factions continue to put on the pressure against the president and this time, things got ugly and violent in front of the presidential palace. that's where you had supporters of the president and opponents of the president facing off in what started as a stare down and then evolved into an all out brawl. two sides were clash iing by throwing rocks, debris, even molotov cocktails. police came in at one point and broke up some of the clashes. others continued throughout the night. now, the question, will the vote take place or will the president back down? >> o
i've had so much support from my family, my friend, my educational background, so, you know, i think it's just i culmination of a ton of different things you can't really pinpoint but all i can do is just thank god i'm here. >> i leave you still have hooks for your hands, but are you going to be moving towards getting, you know, a real hand replacement, a prosthetic? >> i hope so. i've been doing a lot of research and there's really, really cool stuff on the market. there is a mioelectric hand i'm very interested in. it can produce several different grasps, almost mimicking a real hand. so, i'm definitely interested in getting that. right now, however, what i'm most interested in is getting out of the wheelchair because that does restrict a lot of my mobility. what i'm focusing on now is actually making the left leg. i'm been talking to my prosthetist about it. hopefully tomorrow we'll be making the mold of my left leg. and once that leg is is completed, my next priority will be getting some better functioning hands. >> what you had to overcome is is so incredible. are you to relearn
on drugs, they say look, we spend more on drug education and treatment than they do on law enforcement. what could they do better? >> what they could do better is simply stop locking people up. if you are sent to prison, you end up in far worse state than if you were actually sent to a drug rehabilitation center and helped. >> you're known as such a free spirit, right? do you smoke marijuana? >> i'm a '60s lad. i tried a split or two when i was a teenager. i decided that drink was my drug of choice, and so i prefer white wine or beer to marijuana, but you know, whether children of mine do, we'll, that's another story. >> i'm sure, right, they're in the age where i suppose it can be. all right, well, thank you very much. really appreciate your time. >> cheers, thank you. >> pretty interesting and serious topic, although he did say afterwards that he would want to try pot brownies. breaking the taboo will be able on youtube this evening and his opinion is on cnn.com/opinion right now and it is amazing. some of the statistics are unforgettable. >>> up next, mohammed morsi addresses suppor
that are guesswork, conjecture, educated guesswork to be sure, but still, they're conjecture. it's not like a court of law where you say this is the evidence, this is irrefutable proof. on the other hand there are certain things that the intelligence community can do. for example, they can assess how stockpiles were accumulated in a particular country. you mentioned that the russians had supplied some chemical agents to the syrians and that's absolutely true. you can assess how each area supplies the syrians. you know what they've done, how they've done it and how often they do it. also you can have some intelligence sometimes from human sources that specifically outlines exactly, you know, how good the chemical weapons are, whether they'll be used, whether there's good training for it, what kind of training these people have and all of that is weighed in when they make their assessment. >> there are reports that the assad regime has loaded the chemical weapons onto missiles. you need to get between assad and the person that pushes the button on the missile. how do we know that? >> there are report
